This product is intended for industrial use. In a domestic environment this product may cause radio interference. It is the user’s responsibility to take adequate precautions.

Arc 150i

Note!

Connect the power source to the electricity mains with a network impedance of 0.210 ohm or lower. If the network impedance is higher, there is a risk of flicker in the illuminators.

Arc 200i

Note!

Connect the power source to the electricity mains with a network impedance of 0.175 ohm or lower. If the network impedance is higher, there is a risk of flicker in the illuminators.

5.1 Placing

Place the welding power source so that its cooling air inlets and outlets are not obstructed.

5.2 Rating plate

The rating plate is located on the rear plate or on the bottom plate of the power source.

5.3 Mains power supply

Make sure that the welding power source is connected to the correct supply voltage and that it is protected by the correct fuse rating. The standards for the country in question must be complied with as regards the mains cable area. A protective earth connection must be made in accordance with regulations.

6.2 Connection of welding and return cable

The welding power source has two terminals, one plus and one minus pole, for the connection of the welding and the return cable. Connect the welding cable to the pole indicated on the package of the electrode to be used.

Connect the return cable to the other terminal. Fit the earth clamp of the return cable to the work--piece and make sure there is good contact between the work--piece and the return cable terminal on the welding power source.

6.4 Overheating protection

The welding power source has a thermal overload trip which operates if the temperature becomes too high, interrupting the welding current and lighting a yellow indicating lamp on the front of the power source. The thermal overload trip resets automatically when the temperature has fallen.

WELDING

The Arc 150i/Arc 200i gives direct current, and you can weld most metals to alloy and non--alloy steel, stainless steel and cast iron. The Arc 150i allows you to weld most coated electrodes from 1.6 to 3.25. The Arc 200i allows you to weld most coated electrodes from 1.6 to 4.0.

MMA welding may also be referred to as welding with coated electrodes. Striking the arc melts the electrode, and its coating forms protective slag.

If, when striking the arc, the tip of the electrode is pressed against the metal, it im- mediately melts and sticks to the metal, rendering continued welding impossible. Therefore, the arc has to be struck in the same way that you would light a match.

Quickly strike the electrode against the metal, then raise it so as to give an appropriate arc length (approx. 2 mm). If the arc is too long, it will crackle and spit before finally going out com- pletely.

If you are working on a welding bench, check before attempting to strike the arc that residual waste metal, pieces of electrode or other objects do not insulate the part to be welded.

Once the arc has been struck, move the electrode from left to right. The electrode must be at an angle of 60 ˚ to the metal in relation to the direction of welding.

When you want to weld wide beads, or when you want the weld to be so thick that you have to weld in a number of layers, how- ever, you have to use lateral movements.

8 MAINTENANCE

Regular maintenance is important for safe, reliable operation.

Note! All guarantee undertakings from the supplier cease to apply if the customer himself attempts any work in the product during the guarantee period in order to rectify any faults.

The Arc 150i/Arc 200i requires little maintenance. In normal cases, it is sufficient to blow it clean using dry compressed air once a year, but this should be done more often if it is set up in a dusty, dirty area.

9 FAULT TRACING

Try these recommended checks and inspections before sending for an authorised service technician.

Type of fault

 

Action

No arc.

S

Check that the mains power supply switch is turned on.

S

Check whether the thermal overload trips have operated (indicated by the yellow lamp on the front panel).

S

Check the main power supply fuses.

The thermal overload trip opera- tes frequently.

S

Make sure that you are not exceeding the rated data for the welding power source (i.e. that the unit is not being overloaded).

Poor welding performance.

S

Check that the welding current supply and return cables are correctly connected.

S

Check that the correct current value is set.

S

Check that the correct electrodes are being used.

10 ORDERING SPARE PARTS

Arc 150i / Arc 200i is designed and tested in accordance with the international and Eu- ropean standards IEC/EN 60974--1 and EN 60974--10. It is the obligation of the service unit which has carried out the service or repair work to make sure that the product still conforms to the said standard.
